Let’s get the facts out of the way, this bread is made in your slow cooker crockpot on HIGH in 2 hours.   It’s a extremely simple recipe with basic ingredients that produces delicious, soft bread.   It takes about 40 minutes to prep, with 30 of those minutes dedicated to just letting your dough double in size. 

Here’s a 30 minute before and after. I like to leave my dough somewhere warm while rising.

Cut a piece of parchment paper that is the size of your slow cooker bottom and about 2 inches up the side.  It’s important that you go up the sides as your dough will expand (it’s turning into bread!) and you don’t want it to stick to the side of the slow cooker.

I like to add some rosemary or thyme on top of the bread as it adds a little bit of season and makes the kitchen smell great!  This is completely optional though, the bread is just as great without it!

The bread will start to brown on the bottom and sides and be completely ready to eat in 2 hours!

From there you can serve as is, or if you like more of a crusty bread, you can broil the top of the bread.  To do this, slightly butter the top of the bread and stick it in your oven under the broiler (or toaster oven on broil) for about 1 minute.  Watch your bread like a hawk while you broil as it can burn very quickly.  Mine usually takes about 1 minute.   Now look at this crusty top!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • rosemary optional

Instructions

  1. Pour warm water into a large bowl.  Add sugar and mix until dissolved.  Add dry yeast and stir.  Let sit for about 10 minutes until foamy.  I always find it helps to sit it in a warm spot.

  2. Add salt to bowl and stir to dissolve.  Add vegetable oil.

  3. Add flour and mix with hands until everything is combined.  Knead the dough for 5 minutes and form into a round ball.

  4. Place dough in olive oil coated bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Sit in a warm spot for 30 minutes to rise, doubling in size.

  5. Cut a piece of parchment paper and place in bottom of slow cooker.  Make sure the parchment paper comes up the bottom of the sides of the slow cooker so when the bread expands it won't stick to the sides.  Additionally, I like to spray the parchment paper with nonstick spray.

  6. Place your dough into slow cooker.  Sprinkle with rosemary.

  7. Cook on HIGH for 2 hours.

  8. Remove from slow cooker and brush a little bit of butter on top.  Place under broiler for about 1 minute until slightly brown.  Keep a eye on it and make sure it does not burn!  Broiling is not a necessary step but I recommend it to get the top crispy!
